This is Me

My name’s Erica Spencer and I live in Parkdale, Toronto, with my husband Craig, and my two kids, Bean and Lark. 

Bean, my oldest, is now 12. As a brain cancer survivor, he’s had to take on more in his short life than most adults ever do. He’s a smart, funny kid who loves reading and Minecraft. His cancer story can be found here:

My little Lark is 6. She is a noisy, exuberant child whose mission on Earth is to spread joy and love. She’s artistic and oddly observant for her young years. We adore her beyond reason.

Having a cancer child in the family has changed all of us in ways we could never have foreseen. We’re grateful for each day, we embrace our imperfections and we try (TRY!) to live in the moment.

Here at Duck and Rabbit you’ll find a little mix of the things that interest me, including but not limited to: parenting, health, travel, the environment and minimalism. 

Welcome. Stick around for a bit!
